hey! i’ve still got a lot of jewelry for sale up in my etsy shop, hint hint! (not everything is pictured here) but guess what! from now until May 10th (mother’s day!), you can use coupon code MOMSDAY1 to get 25% off any order over 20 dollars!! think of your mother! or of a friend! or of yourself! doesn’t matter to me, it’ll work no matter who it’s for! (although if you do make a purchase ON May 10th and it’s for your mom well i can’t guarantee it’ll get there by mother’s day)
SO i went to a rendezvous today in prairie du chien and this is what i wore! i worked on this dress for like i dunno probably a week and it’s not finished it’s SO FAR FROM BEING FINISHED but i didn’t feel like working more on it so i just hid the bad parts and pretended i looked fabulous, which i totes did
then after the rendezvous we went down to mcgregor iowa cause it’s a neat little town and there were some shops we wanted to stop at but the ones i wanted to look at were closed so we just went to some antique shops and i found this HUGE frickin red petticoat, like the biggest i’ve ever seen. i’m wearing it in the third pic like i couldn’t even get the whole thing in the mirror it’s pretty impressive tbh
anyway i got some compliments and one guy asked for my pic but i’m sure it was super terrible picture but oh well
so YEAH have some poopy pics of me tryin to be kawaii in the first full dress i ever made ever!
i was able to finish the purse btw i just went slower and i didn’t break any more needles lol
it’s not perfect, but i think it turned out okay!! the mistakes aren’t that noticable, but i mean i wouldn’t sell this to someone so whatever. the tutorial didn’t call for a zipper or the loops on the handle that i could put the D-rings in SO i dunno it’s sorta awkward when you have to open it but it’s not terrible and i’m proud of myself for experimenting.
this is only the second time i’ve put a zipper on something and i’ve still got a long way to go but there’s TONS of improvement from last time
